Tips/Tricks from Gavin Sutherland, anotherfoodblogger.com @another_food_blogger

The longer you leave the lamb marinate the more it will absorb the flavours so try rub it a day in advance*

A general rule when cooking lamb is 20-25 mins per 500g for rare and 25-30mins for medium – medium rare

Don’t forget to let your meat rest, one of the most important things when cooking meat.

If cooking on a BBQ then make sure you cook using indirect heat, this means lighting one side of the BBQ and placing meat on the opposite side
